Timeless appeal

Are those fine lines that you espy around your eyes? And are you lurching from one anti-ageing cream to another? Then try out Amway's Artistry Youth Xtend range of anti-ageing skincare products. The American FMCG company has unveiled its collection of six anti-ageing products in India. There's a Serum Concentrate (Rs 4,199), Enriching Eye Cream (Rs 2,599), Protecting Lotion (Rs 3,699), Protecting Cream (Rs 3,699), Enriching Cream (Rs 3,699) and Enriching Lotion (Rs 3,699).

The range is armed with a botanical extract called LifeSirt, which the company says is derived from Mediterranean Myrtle. This is believed to have rejuvenating properties. There's also a protein called Micro X-6 that's said to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that helps boost collagen formation. This apart, the collection also includes extracts from acerola cherry and black currant as well as the fruit of the African baobab tree that all claim to provide the skin with protective antioxidants while having soothing and moisturising benefits.

The new range is available through a network of 15 lakh Amway distributors across India.

Traveller friendly

American Tourister, the US lifestyle luggage brand, has launched its latest line of lightweight, yet tough, spinner cabin bags called Prismo. You can pick from a choice of vibrant colours like neon orange and purple as well as charcoal. The luggage owes its name to the sleek front panels on the bags the edges of which join in a way that reflects light resulting in a prism effect. The bags come with fixed TSA (transportation security administration) combination locks, a push-button trolley and retractable handles on the sides and on top. There are detachable pouches inside as well.

The bags are available in three sizes -- 55cm, 65cm and 75cm - and prices start at Rs 5,950. The Prismo range is available at major American Tourister stores across India.
